TCR Tips & Tricks

What's new in iOS 9

In every update, Apple products improve with a slew of new features and capabilities. Remember, it's always FREE to upgrade! Here’s a quick overview of what to check out in iOS 9.

Apple has updated the core apps, such as Notes, Maps, Wallet, and News. CarPlay is a robust, entirely new interface adopted by most major car manufacturers around the globe to provide complete integration between your phone and your vehicle in a safe, hands free manner.

The updates to the Notes app are really exciting - they’ve enabled sketches, checklists, maps, and photo attachments among many other helpful additions.

Maps has been updated with extremely detailed public transit directions for major cities, even with, for example,layouts of subway stations themselves!

Wallet now has compatibility with a larger range of cards (including reward cards and event tickets!), and Apple Pay is widely accepted the world over just by holding your phone near a card reader at checkout or double tapping the favorites button on your Apple Watch.

iOS 9 brings many new features to the iPad as well, including Slide Over, Split View, and Picture in Picture.

Slide Over will enable you to “slide” another app in on top of the one that you’re currently using. For example, you can respond to a message without leaving Youtube or jot down a note while reading through an important email.

Split View allows you to have two entire apps fully functioning simultaneously! For example, on the same screen you can write a paper while referencing a textbook, or look at detailed maps while buying tickets.

Picture in Picture allows you to continue watching videos or chatting through FaceTime while accessing any other function by shrinking and floating the video above the other apps you open on the same screen.

Refinements “under the hood” in the operating system can make huge differences without the user initially noticing any changes. For example, Apple iOS 9 automatically extends battery life without you having to change a thing! The size of the operating system itself has shrunk so you can have more free space for pictures, songs, videos, apps, etc. iOS 9 also includes a smarter Siri, easier migration from Android using an app to transfer all your contacts and data to a new iPhone, and more! Visit Apple’s iOS 9 page to make sure your device is compatible.
